243 Win Cartridge Guide within AccurateShooter.com

I think the caliber you want will do all you need. One of the BOTW clips you can find on line shows them dropping a yote at 1100yds with a 243 using a 107SMK.

none of the NEW factory rifles that i know of have a twist fast enough for a 107 except for the savage 6br in an 8 twist. i have never heard of a factory remington stabalizing a 107. the Botw shot the coyote 1017 yards with a 105 berger out of an 8 twist 243. i have heard some rems will handle the 105 a-max . sully you should be able to find something that will work in your VLS. enjoy.

3) Everything the VLS has to offer I like / or wish to have

4) If they did offer it...and they dont...the alternative caliber(s) Id chose would be a 6.5-06; 25-06 and maybe???( but I really doubt it) a .270 but AGAIN the arent offered in the VLS model.
You're right I am missing that point because that's not what you stated in the posts I've replied to.

Ive got a VLS in 22-250....and a re-stocked SPS in 243...but am looking for something that will "reach out and touch someone"..sort of thing. 600; 700 or maybe even further distance.
I shoot long range with lots of wind on a regular basis because I've spent most of my life in the western US shooting long range in the winds most of my life so I thought it prudent to suggest calibers which should perform better out here.

Sorry for wasting your time by suggesting calibers with better ballistic characteristics for your intended purposes.

Man... I screwed the pooch on that info! Thanks for the correction. I knew the Savages handle the heavier bullets for the .243. I knew the yardage was pretty far, but thought it a little farther. Oh well, that is why we back each other up here.
